List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 4

 

This is review week!  If you are doing 3 year old homeschool, how is it going?  Yesterday, Jessica said that Hadley is acting like she doesn’t know the colors and numbers that she learned the past few weeks.  I told her I am not sure that she is not playing around–pretending that she doesn’t know them because that is not what she wants to do.

She frequently knows we are asking her questions and expecting certain responses.  She likes to not give the response that she knows that person wants.  For example:  If I ask her, “who loves you?”, she knows I want her to say, “Grammy”.  She will choose to say, “Poppy” or “Mommy” or “G”, looking for me to respond in shock or whatever…

We are constantly having to try to figure out how to outsmart a 3 year old!!  How do you teach when they don’t want to cooperate?  You have to get very creative!   Instead of asking for the blue blocks, you may say, “I wonder how fast you can put all of the blue blocks in the bucket”.  The focus goes to “how fast” rather than “blue blocks”.  🙂

I would love to hear your creative ways of teaching in the comments below!

This Homeschool Plan is adapted from ABCJesuslovesme.com Curriculum.

Week 4:  Review all objectives and books covered in the past weeks, and complete any activities that you were unable to finish.

Bible Story:  Creation, Adam & Eve Disobey

Books: Five Little Ducks, Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?,   Is Your Mama a Llama

Letter:  Aa

Number:  0-2

Colors:  Black, White, Blue, Brown, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple

Bible Song: O Be Careful (Traditional) – YouTube
O be careful little eyes what you see (point to eyes)
O be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above (point up for Jesus)
Is looking down in love (put hand to eyes and look down)
O be careful little eyes what you see

Additional Verses:
…little hands what you do
…little feet where you go
…little ears what you hear
…little mouth what you say
…little mind what you think

Additional song idea:

Poem:

Traditional poems and nursery rhymes help children with rhyme, fine motor skills, and rhythm as well as beginning reading.  Assist the child in performing actions to the poems and quote them very slowly at first to help the children correctly learn the words.  Quote them throughout the day (example: while driving, in the bathtub, while washing hands)

One, Two Buckle My Shoe

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, open the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, do it again

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, open the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, a big fat hen

 

Activity:

Letter Formation Chants: A – pull down, pull down, across

Just as with the numbers, tactile letters are a significant part of the 3 Year Curriculum.  The ABCJLM website contains a plethora of simple ideas to make or purchase your own tactile letter set.  As the child traces the tactile letters, be sure to say the Letter Formation Chants included in the Objectives to help the child learn the correct formation.  The process of actually writing the letters is not covered at this point of the learning but the tactile letters will prepare the child for handwriting activities.

333106: Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC

 

Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow is a book you can use throughout the curriculum.  The child will learn about Jesus as well as work on the ABC’s and phonetic sounds.

How to Run a Home Daycare: Letter of the week

This Outnumbered Mama

Wildflower Ramblings

Check out this website: Teach Beside Me

Colors:

Numbers: 0-2

Tactile numbers(also called sandpaper or textured)—because many 3 year olds do not have the fine motor skills for handwriting activities, trace the numbers with the child’s finger.  As the child traces the tactile numbers, be sure to say the number rhymes included in the objectives to help the child learn the correct information

 

Comprehension Questions: (use when planning story and at the end of the week use them to check for understanding of the Bible story)

 

 

Motor Skills:

  • Day 1: Fine Motor Skills:  Build bridges, buildings, and trains with Legos or wooden blocks.
  • Day 2: Peg Puzzles–Using the peg puzzles, encourage the child to pick up the puzzle pieces using her thumb and index finger.
  • Day 3: Play While playing Twister by the actual rules of the game is probably too difficult for this age level, simplify the rules and take turns calling out colors and body parts to match.
    • Gross motor skills are big motor skills (running, jumping, hopping, etc.). They require balance and coordination.

 

Other:

  • Charlie Church Mouse Preschool Cd-Rom:
    • Play the “Creation” adventure
  • From Motherhoodonadime.com: Have your child practice shaking hands
    and introducing themselves .
  •  From Motherhoodonadime.com:  Review how and where to put toys away in
    your child’s bedroom. Too often we want our
    children to clean up, but they don’t know where
    things belong. It can also be overwhelming.
    Have a special place for toys — whether it’s colorcoded
    bins, labeled boxes, or one big toy box .
    Whatever system you use, just be sure your child
    has plenty of practice using it and understands
    what expectations you have for room cleanliness.
